Useful poker terms:
- ALL-IN - To have all of one's chips in the pot. A player who is all-in cannot be forced out of the pot by more betting, but is only eligible to win that portion of the pot he has contributed to. Generally, a SIDE POT is created each time a player is all-in.
- SPLIT [OPENERS] - In draw poker, to discard one or more openers, usually to draw to a straight or flush. Normally requires the opener to declare the act and retain the discards so that the act of opening can later be validated.
- DOOR [CARD] - A player's first upcard in stud games.
- STUCK - Down a nontrivial amount of money, as in "he's stuck $800".
- STRAIGHT - A hand consisting of 5 cards in sequence but not in suit.
- POT - The total amount of money bet so far in a hand.
